A single-family home located two blocks south of Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills is poised to make way for new apartments.

The proposed project at 232 S. Doheny Drive, scheduled to be reviewed at the June 11 meeting of the Beverly Hills Planning Commission, calls for razing the existing home to clear the way for a new five-story, nine-unit apartment complex with 13 parking spaces.

Approvals requested by Requested approvals include density bonus incentives to permit a larger structure than would otherwise be allowed by zoning rules. In exchange, one of the proposed one- and three-bedroom apartments is to be set aside for rent by very low-income households.

Architect Jamsheed Sobhani is designing 232 Doheny, which is depicted in a rendering as a contemporary podium-type building. Plans show that two rooftop decks would cap the building.

City records list the project applicant as 232 Doheny, LLC, an entity based out of the same address as Beverly Hills-based M&G Civil Engineering & Land Surveying, Inc. and managed by Fred Ghalachi.

The project bears many similarities to a nine-unit density bonus project recently approved for a nearby site at 332 Doheny Drive. That apartment building would also replace a single-family home.
